I partially agree with Tim. The bar is very high, it means having people that know how to QGIS programming.
But it is not a sprint code, it is a UN hackaton so requested money should help advancing in the UN open gis initiative. Maybe you could use part of the money to invite and international QGIS programmer expert
to help with this...
Otherwise in my opinion it worth to organise a regular sprint code and ask money to OSGeo and not to the UN committee.

There are many functionalities developed by the Korean team within geotools that were specifically requested by UN for the UN Open GIS Initiative. They are freely available in github. A good challenge could be to work starting from those functionalities
to add them in QGIS ( for instance as plugins). This in my opinion is useful for the UN Open GIS Project and can be easily faced by students/young developers of the hackathon.
Sanghee is part of the OSGEO Board and is strongly involved in UN Open GIS Initiative. Therefore he can be the most representative person to come to the hackathon. But Jeff has a lot of experience in the whole initiative as well.
The most important point is to have tangible results and to attract many young talented people to this hackathon and give it a lot of visibility.
Let us see what the other members of the committee suggest.
I hope to have the possibility of better discussing it on Monday morning during our committee meeting. Will you or Serena attend it?
